We had what is now and forever will be referred to as the: Halloween snow of 2020.
I think I heard it was about 3 or 4 inches which really isn’t very much for these parts.
But it wasn’t predicted....and it was still October!
I woke Saturday morning to a big, beautiful full moon shining through my bedroom window.
It blanketed the bedcovers with moonlight and Tucker (our cat) and I quietly got up to watch it sink down over the rooftops of the little town we live in.
I made some coffee and after a half a cup, noticed that the sun was rising bright and orange over the harbour so I pulled on all of my warmest clothing and walked down the road to take some pictures.
The ramps to the docks are up at the town landing. Only the boatyard dock is still in use. You can see the lobster traps stacked for when the boats comes in with their hauls.
Marblehead Light is across the harbour on “the neck.”
It looks like it could be December and not Halloween.
It felt like it too and it wasn’t long before I felt the cold seeping in and turned toward home.
I woke early on Sunday morning and glanced out of my bedroom window to see the full moon passing through an opening in the heavy cloud cover. I grabbed my phone and waited for the next opening in the clouds.
It was so beautiful and perfectly timed - just like a gift.
Every year one of the homes in my neighborhood builds a fantastical Halloween creation.
This year they built King Kong. His face moves and he has teeth that show when he growls!
They are very talented!
Friday fave fives. Friday favorites. Thursday favorite things
Your picture of the dock is so stunning, that is my favorite here. It sure was worth you going out in the cold. I love your nature table, and the table itself fits the theme so well!ReplyDelete
Great shots. Love them all. Eye for composition and color here.ReplyDelete
Great photos! I love your 'little table that could" LOL! I think it deserves keeping. The King Kong is impressive -- bamboo cage and all!ReplyDelete
Halloween-mas is the perfect name. Strange and curious to see snow on pumpkins. I love your neighbor's King Kong!ReplyDelete
love your dock pic!!ReplyDelete
And that is quite the halloween decoration! Yikes!!
YAY for getting a pic of the wonderful full moon and sunrise. We had only a half inch of snow here in eastern NY and it was all gone by noon on the day before Halloween. My daughter at UNH/Durham (about an hour north of boston) said they had about 2 inches. It's been so gorgeous here all week!!
Great pictures but snow at halloween?! That King Kong is rather scary lol. Enjoy the weekend.ReplyDelete
Wow! That King Kong is quite realistic. And it growls...ReplyDelete
Snow! On Halloween! It will be a day to remember!
I pick up stones, shells and feathers when I walk, too. As I was unpacking 'that box', I put all my little treasures back in their places. I love the concept of your nature table.
Wow--snow in October! We've had a cold snap here this week, but thankfully it's supposed to warm up a bit next week. The table is a nice size. Lovely photos.ReplyDelete
Such lovely pics. We have had a ton of snow on the weekend. Still shoveling out the drifts days later.ReplyDelete
